Beer5000 (6492) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 24, 2017
Bottle at midsummer’s family party 2017, thanx to my mother in law who actually made an effort to provide a good beer especially for me. Hazy golden yellow body with a moderate sized white head. Aroma is acidic fruity, farmhouse, yeast, mild Brett and slightly woody. Flavor is light pale malt, smooth fruity, tart, slightly lemon, citric fruit, wood, farmhouse funky. Fine body and long lasting aftertaste. A really fine, tasty and quite complex one from Brekeriet, definitively more than just another kettle sour blond.

Hazy, with a touch of tan. Thin head. A fair bit of acid, with a fruity brett note. Fruity, bretty, soft body. Nice candyish character from the brett, and good complexity. Overall, a pretty good. I’m digging this.

750mL bottle, pours a cloudy opaque orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out lots of oak barrels upfront, with various wild yeasts. Flavour is along the same lines, with lots of prominent oak barrel character upfront, light-moderate tartness, wild funky yeast and a touch of vanilla. Oak barrel character is very nicely blended with the wild yeasts. Very good stuff. Sigmund (7537) - Tau, NORWAY - APR 21, 2017

Medium sour and astringent flavour, fairly dry. notes of lemons, brett, oak and lactic acid. larsga (7542) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 24, 2017
Small white head doesn’t last. Hazy opaque deep yellow body. Vinegary funky wooden aroma with sugary notes. Acidic vinegary funky taste with barnyard and winter apple notes. Mid-to-thin body. Sharpish, mealy mouthfeel. Dry-acidic funky waxy vinegary aftertaste with earthy, fruity, barnyard notes. It’s a bit sharp and harsh, somewhat raw in its dirty cow dung barnyardyness.

(On tap @ CBC 2016 Green Session) Pours yellow gold with a small white head. Nose of tart lemon, sweetish pale malt with slight graininess, oak, unripe apple, rather yeasty, white grape, Bretty funk. Flavour has a bit of a sweet pale malt core to hold rather tart lemon, sour white grape and other unripe fruits, fairly heavy Brett wet earth and hay, woody notes, light acetic quality, some grain, slightly bready yeast quality. Finishes semi-dry and rather funky with a bit of tannin. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Solid stuff, didn’t quite jump out to me but my palate was probably pretty blown when I tried it.
